Well, the Redskins are serious, serious underdogs in Vegas. But you know what? I'm still feeling good. I'm feeling confident. Because from here on out the rest of the season is gravy. And you know what else? I think we can keep it rolling. Here's four reasons why:
First, Seattle fans are super nice, apparently. No homefield edge there. Volume, shmolume. Every stadium is loud, especially in the playoffs.
Secondly, we've got Joe Gibbs, the man, the myth, the legend. Read that linked story and tell me if it doesn't remind you why you have total faith in him and his teams.
Thirdly, we've got a little revenge factor that could give our defense that little extra juice.
And finally, we've got a rap! Check this out:
If that doesn't get you pumped up, Skins fans, nothing will.
But anyway, here's the bottom line. Even if the Skins' season ends tomorrow in Seattle, it will still be an unqualified success and will have exceeded all rational expectations. So, the Redskins are playing with house money at this point. Seattle is most decidedly not. They know it, and the Redskins know it. That's why the Skins will come out loose in the rainy city, and Seattle will come out tight. Ballgame.
